Quinn barely emerges 11th in reader mock

With the 11th pick in the 2011 AFC East reader mock draft, the Houston Texans select ... Robert Quinn, defensive end, North Carolina.

A third of the way into our project, we were forced into overtime to get a clear choice. Early Tuesday morning, Quinn and Clemson defensive end Da'Quan Bowers were tied at the ballot box.

A few hours later, Quinn generated a few more votes to win narrowly.

Our mock draft to date:

  1. Carolina Panthers: Auburn quarterback Cam Newton

  2. Denver Broncos: Alabama defensive tackle Marcell Dareus

  3. Buffalo Bills: Texas A&M outside linebacker Von Miller

  4. Cincinnati Bengals: Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert

  5. Arizona Cardinals: Louisiana State cornerback Patrick Peterson

  6. Cleveland Browns: Georgia receiver A.J. Green

  7. San Francisco 49ers: Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara

  8. Tennessee Titans: Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley

  9. Dallas Cowboys: USC tackle Tyron Smith

  10. Washington Redskins: Alabama receiver Julio Jones

  11. Houston Texans: North Carolina defensive end Robert Quinn
